I couldn’t come up with a clever post title, so we’ll just get right to the details.
Shopping for granite can be quite daunting. We made several trips to different stone distributors in Denver. If you recall, we got a great deal on the kitchen granite by coincidence at a lumber vendor that was just getting into the granite business. It took a little longer to find the bathroom granite, but we finally selected Ivory Cream, luckily a Group 1 granite. We were able to find a great fabricator with very reasonable installation prices. So we ended up being able to use granite for all the counter tops for less than our original estimate for just the kitchen and master bath! We even have some granite left over that the fabricator is reserving for us in their remnant pile for any future use.
Here’s a summary of the granite process (click on the image to see it larger):
Once the granite was in, it was time to finalize the interior wall paint. I even brought in some of the stone pieces that will soon be installed around the fireplace.
The colors from left to right are: Edgecomb Gray, Pale Oak, and Revere Pewter (all Benjamin Moore). We’ve made our choice. You’ll have to wait to see which one it is!!
